Functional? Dont think so. Visual? I've heard of a few ppl cutting theirs. They look good too. I would like to get one but I dont know if its a safe mod.

Cutting it doesn't make it a short-shift. If anything it is less functional because (in theory) when driving your hands are on the wheel and the closer the shifter is to the wheel the quicker you can be.

I believe there is a short shift kit out there, I can't remember where I saw it though. Possibly on microimage or versaspeed.

So a short shifter is that short throws? shorter stick? or shorter distance from wheel to stick?

short shifter makes the shifts shorter. Basically you don't have to move the gear knob as far, making the shifts quicker and requiring less effort

2008 Versa S:
-Throttle Controller
-DC Exhaust+Intake
-Strut brace+Sway bar
-Spec-V Wheels
-H&R Sport Springs
-Navi HU, Pioneer Spkrs, 2x10" CV Subs.

Cutting the shifter knob doesn't make it any better, especially the maybe 3 inches you will be able to shorten it. The shifter is as long as it is for a reason.

Ive cut mine down a little and honestly its not harder or better. It just looks better. I wish they would make one though.
